Feature Film Winner - Growing Cities

Driven from their hometown by its poor health, the filmmakers set out to discover how other cities feed themselves. Along the way, they meet city dwellers fundamentally challenging the way this country produces food - from urban homesteaders trying to make ends meet to backyard gardeners fighting for their rights to grow food, they find city farming is about more than just good produce.

After the film, Green Lens will host a panel discussion on local foods and share ways that community members can get involved.
